OU Bomber Tried to Buy Fertilizer

Despite an apparent clamp-down by the FBI on information about the death of Joel Hinnrichs, details are beginning to be surfaced by enterprising reporters in Oklahoma and elsewhere. Most important of these details is the fact Hinnrichs tried to buy ammonium nitrate from a Norman, Oklahoma, feed store. Ammonium nitrate is one of the prime ingredients in bombs like that used to blow up the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City in 1995.

Yahoo is also reporting that the bomb that killed Hinnrichs was made of components that included Triacetone Triperoxide - aka "Mother of Satan" among Islamofascists - which was last seen in public in connection with Richard Reid, the "shoe bomber" who tried to smuggle explosives stuffed in his shoe sole onto a commercial airliner.

Also, Gateway Pundit is compiling a comprehensive running update of posts and news reports on the OU suicide bomber story. Ditto the incomparable Michelle Malkin.

More to come later today.
